Lost Colours – One Space Left (Instrumental) #electronic #psychtronica

In the annals of ever-changing categories of dance music ‘psychtronica’ had passed me by. That’s the term offered by Lost Colours on their new single One Space Left. There is, to be fair, a vocal version this but all that singing right put me off. The tune is perfectly capable of operating on its own. A sitar-laden festival of hippy psychedelia given some electronic structures. The tune is in no way aimless. It is, on its own terms, epic in its intent and has consciousness enveloping qualities. A little bit of Amorphous Androgynous floats about in the vapour trail of this tune. And that can only be a good thing.

Blurb: The Psychtronica duo Lost Colours from Leeds release their début single One Space Left (featuring additional vocals by Rebekah Dobbins of Nouvelle Vague and The Living Gods Of Haiti) on the 12th of February.
Rob Da Bank, no stranger to a splash of colour himself, called it “immense!”. Eddy Temple-Morris called it as a tune of the year for 2018.

In addition to the original edit described by Tim Whale of Emerging Indie Bands as…
‘…An expansive track, which, akin to the natural physics of pressure equalisation fills the room with billowing clouds of sitar, electronics and instrumentation in an unhurried composition which takes the listener on a carpet-ride of hypnotic texture and weave leaving the audience staring through kaleidoscopic eyes long after the sounds have drifted past the ears…’

The single also has a remix of Once Space Left from Ty Unwin, one the UKs most established composers. An eloquently produced piece of music in its own right that compliments the sublime production of the original. The stripped back cinematic atmosphere is an ear pleasing feast of soundscapes and production not dissimilar to the sound of Trent Reznor.

This single is merely a taster to an exciting year for Lost Colours who will be releasing the EP “Different LIfe” in March and the eleven track album “Talking In Technicolour” in April, which Bjork’s producer, Damian Taylor, who mixed their album, said ’…It’s the most colourful music I’ve ever worked on…’
